I’ts a common case, when members of some community are going to play a game.
Examples of a community:
- Streamer’s audience (subday)
- Thematic Discord server
There is no problems with tools that will bring people together. The thing is, that users have to deal with list of battle tags. i.e. manually add each other to party/friends.
Would be nice to have API to automate this:
- Send request to friends
- Ingame invite to party
- Create lobby
- Invite to lobby
- and so on
To prevent abuse it’s would be fine to make such API “disabled by default”.
Consider a case:
- Community “X” wants use Party API.
- User A and user B are members of X.
- A and B grants permission scope(oauth) of Party API to X.
- User C doesn’t grant.
- A can invite B
- B can invite A
- A or B can’t invite C.
- C can’t invite A or B.
By “invite” I mean scenario when user interacts with UI/UX of some App managed by X e.g. Discord bot.
Target games: actually all blizzard’ multiplayer games (why not).
